JAMAICA, Brielle, NJ – 1961
Built in 1961 by James Coppedge & Sons at Atlantic Beach, FL, this "JAMAICA" was the first steel vessel in the Bogan fleet. The boat was originally operated by Captain Howard Bogan Sr. who started their offshore Cod and Pollack trips to 50 to 75 mile wrecks in this vessel. Captain Dave Bogan Sr. later operated the "JAMAICA" and was then followed by Captain Joe Bogan. The boat was sold in the late 1980s and converted to a commercial long-line fishing boat, the "DAWN". The "DAWN" sailed from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ until 2007 and was dismantled.
